What Is An Air Gun Magazine? (and how do they work)

What Is An Air Gun Magazine

An airgun magazine is what holds your pellets on a multi-shot rifle.

What Are Air Gun Magazines?

An air gun magazine is a device used to store and feed pellets into a multi-shot air rifle. This allows for continuous shooting without the need to reload manually after each shot.

To use one, you simply insert pellets into the magazine, which can be done using your thumb or a pellet seating tool to ensure proper alignment. You then insert the magazine into your rifle, and you’re ready to shoot.

The magazine ensures that pellets are correctly fed into the air rifle in the right orientation – giving you a smoother shooting experience.

This is a nice feature to have on your rifle, whether you’re a pest controller, hunter or back garden plinker.
